Promo Jeune Basket is an organization based in Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo, that uses basketball to inspire young people to take a serious approach to their education and civil responsibilities. The objective is to educate the youth of Congo so that they can one day become responsible and educated adults who can contribute to the reconstruction of their country. PJB believes that education is essential in the development of a society. At sport level, PJB aims at training a generation of talented basketball players who will be able to represent this sport and their country at the highest level.
